Preschool 3 to 5
Surfers is for children 3-5 years old who have completed Divers or show an equivalent level of competence.
In Surfers, we'll continue to help your child develop front and back swimming skills and build up to a distance of 15 metres. Your child will learn a variety of water safety skills as well as surface support in deep water for 30 seconds. And now that your child is comfortable jumping into the water, we'll work on some creative, fun entries. Ker-splash!
Surfers is taught in small groups by a certified YMCA swim instructor who will share their love of swimming with your child. Children are encouraged to attend independent of their parent.
To learn more or register for continuous swim lessons, please contact your membership services team.
